Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ACT! FOR AMERICA, was able to get a CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) spokesman removed as a speaker at Everett Community College in Washington State.
CAIR has been very active in coercing colleges and other organizations into dropping respected anti-Islam speakers because it does not want the truth to reach a wide audience. Well, all I can say to CAIR is payback’s a bitch!
From an ACT! FOR AMERICA press release: Last Sunday, one of our members emailed us that Everett Community College in Washington state had scheduled a presentation about Islam in America. The college announcement listed an official with Terrorist Front Group CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, as one of the speakers.
Chris, a member of our national staff, sprang into action. He put a notice on our Facebook page, urging our friends to contact the college, educate them about CAIR’s background and its ties to Hamas, and demand that the college provide an opposing viewpoint to CAIR’s. Within 24 hours ACT! for America Facebook friends posted hundreds of comments on the college’s Facebook page!
Everett Community College responded by saying this is by far the most public reaction the college has ever received on any issue.
What’s more, the college removed CAIR from its website announcement and announced another presentation would be offered, this one to feature Raymond Ibrahim presenting a different viewpoint. We emailed Ibrahim’s recent column just this past Tuesday! This illustrates, yet again, the impact of grassroots people power.
This is why we are launching our new half-hour weekly television program, debuting February 5th.
Our premiere show’s special guest will be U.S. Rep. Peter King, the new Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.
The program will air at 2:30 PM Eastern Time on Saturday, February 5th, on Family Net (both cable and broadcast), and will air weekly at that time for a total of 26 weeks. It will also air at 4:00 PM Eastern Time on Sunday, February 6th, on American Life Network (ALN), and will air weekly at that time.
The program will also be available for viewing online the week of February 7th.
Please check your local listings to see if your cable provider carries either Family Net or ALN.
If your provider doesn’t carry Family Net or ALN, I encourage you to DO THE FOLLOWING—Put in a request to your provider. It’s also likely that someone you know who lives in another part of the country has access to either Family Net or ALN. Please forward them information on our show and encourage them to watch it.
We are also in negotiations with a half dozen other cable networks to air our show. We will keep you updated on our progress.
We are committed to educating and mobilizing Americans to rise up in defense of our security, our liberty and our values. We thank those of you who stood with us financially to make this work possible. Together we answer the call to serve our nation and protect her from those who wish to do her harm.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patriotism and involvement.
